There are few certainties in today’s world, but here are two: Ireland’s population is ageing, and climate change is accelerating. These were among the challenges considered in the Report of the Commission on Taxation and Welfare which was published five months ago.
A comprehensive body of work running to more than 500 pages and containing 116 recommendations, the Report’s proposal to increase capital taxes created political controversy. Since then, discussion of the Report has been relatively low key. But the challenges that informed the Commission’s work are pressing, and the options its Report offers to this and future governments deserve close examination and debate.
This 2.5-hour CPD accredited seminar will be moderated by Shane Coleman, presenter on Newstalk's Breakfast programme. To learn more from our expert panel of speakers, please join us in the Royal College of Physicians, Kildare St., Dublin 2 on Wednesday, 22 March. The full programme is available here.
